Abstract

A pink- to light-reddish-pigmented, aerobic, pointed, budding, mesophilic strain designated MSL-20 was isolated from soil from Bigeum island, Korea. The isolate was Gram-negative. Cells were motile rods without flagella. The temperature and pH for growth were 20–37 °C (optimum 28 °C) and pH 7.0–11.0 (optimum pH 7.0±0.2). Q-10 was the predominant respiratory ubiquinone. The major fatty acids were C (37 %), C 7 (36 %) and 11-methyl C 7 (12 %). Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed that DSM 16684 was its closest neighbour (95.2 % similarity); the isolate had less than 97.0 % similarity to all species with validly published names. Chemotaxonomic data were determined for this isolate, including peptidoglycan type, diagnostic sugar composition, fatty acid profiles, ubiquinones and polar lipids; the results supported the affiliation of strain MSL-20 to the genus . The DNA G+C content was 72.3 mol%. On the basis of the phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, strain MSL-20 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is MSL-20 (=KCTC 22012 =DSM 19309).
